Despite bad weather on one das, we spent the perfect two nights at this gorgeous place; which has a feel of understated luxury, it is classic yet modern in all its amenities and discreet service.
Certain rooms are suitable for travellers with pets and everything is done so they have a good stay too.
The restaurant was very nice with exquisite food served with no fuss, it was busy even on a Monday night which is nice and does not make you feel overcrowded by staff as restaurants can be on early weekly days.
We will most certainly return! It is hospitality at its best...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lime Wood, a boutique country house hotel in England, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London. We like to think of ourselves as a luxury country house hotel with a difference. We've used Lime Wood's classical structure as the basis of our design but we've lovingly renovated it with a fresh approach, reviving its architecture and grounds. We've kept the spirit of its past, taken inspiration from its extraordinarily beautiful surroundings and added the odd contemporary twist to bring it to life. The food is by Luke Holder and Angela Hartnett. With its proximity to London, our New Forest boutique hotel really is the ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home; whatever your motivations, we can't wait to show you around. ... more less
